French English bilingual education
Inspired by the programs of the French Ministry of Education, our bilingual curriculum offers rigor and enrichment.
We welcome students in cycles that each cover three school years and never assign more than 10 students per teacher.
We serve all francophone or francophile populations and keep our tuition fees simple and reasonable. We never charge a supply fee or do any fundraising.
We've opened three classes for Cycles 1, 2 and 3.
In September 2021, we welcomed our first cycle 4 students.
Visit us, by appointment, at 620 Lincoln Avenue.
In cycle 1 (the three kindergarten grades) we maintain a full French immersion environment. Then, bilingual instruction is introduced (adapted to the needs of each child).
Our students are organized by cycle (of three years each) and receive differentiated instruction. This is only possible because we never assign more than 10 students per teacher.
